ronald reagan as an example. ronald reagan stood for principles that conservatives have long believed in. but he believed in the country. he believed in solving problems. he believed in government. even though he would say that in terms of the carter presidency, the way he saw it, you know, the government was the problem, the next sentence after in his famous remark were that, "but, you know, let's make it clear. we're not against government. this is self-government. this is america. it's us." and he believed that. today, you see so many people in congress who really see government as the enemy, who are unwilling to come together to do even the most basic things like pay our bills. and you can't survive that way. so, the intellectual basis of conservatism seems to have disappeared. the idea that you would, you know, go to war or that you would create a program or whatever else, and not pay for it, was the most anti-conservative thing you could imagine. >> are there any reasons to be against big government? >> oh, sure there are. sure, there are. government can be too big. it can be too e

there is a case study here, are am not sure the u.s. system even with ronald reagan, would have been willing to engage in this kind of diplomacy without the impact of the allies because they had to take a missile, we had to be uniquely sensitive to their politics and their concerns in a way that we rarely are in national security. >> you immediately said no to my question. >> i think it took both of them. wreck has mentioned the allies. that is important. i would also mentioned george shultz, the foreign ministers. neither of them could have done it without that sort of support but the fact is that the united states needed someone with the confidence of the right wing to make a deal with the soviet union if any was going to be made that was going to be politically defensible. not that there was no democrat. they couldn't have thought this was a dumb idea. most of them probably did and i will save for the democrats they supported us every way as we were going toward the soviet union. >> so much on deployment. remember the nuclear freeze moment? >> i am talking about when we got the treaty. an

. not everyone listens. ronald reagan sure did. you saw jack's ideas at work in the economic expansion of the 1980's and 1990's. nothing could be more foreign to jack's way of thinking than to accept poverty as a permanent way of life. he did not believe we all belong to some class or station in life. he went into a lot of troubled neighborhoods. never once did he look around and despair. others might think it is never going to get better than that. not jack kemp. he did not buy into that attitude, and neither do we or most americans. america is exceptional for this very reason. both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. let's be really clear. republicans must steer far clear of that trap.
